Depression & Anxiety

Depression is a serious condition that can deeply impact your ability to function in all aspects of life.

Here’s what depression looks and feels like:

  • Feeling hopeless and helpless
  • Irritability and exhaustion
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling worthless and guilty
  • Changes in appetite and sleep
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Suicidal thoughts and the belief that life is not worth living

This is what anxiety looks and feels like:

  • Racing thoughts, excessive worrying, difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling ‘on edge’ or a sense of impending doom
  • Stomach pain, nausea, digestion problems
  • Sleep problems (falling or staying asleep; unrestful sleep)
  • Difficulty breathing, heart palpitations
  • Procrastination or excessive preparation for things that you fear could turn out badly
  • Avoidance of certain people, places or things because they cause extreme fear

Anxiety Can Run You Down and Wear You Out…

  • You feel like you’re being whipped around in a tornado.  You have no control over your thoughts and feelings.
  • When you think about all the expectations and responsibilities you have to fulfill, a knot forms in the pit of your stomach.  You’re scared stiff that you will fail.
  • Sometimes you can’t catch your breath.  It feels like you’re having a heart attack.
  • You rarely want to leave your home.  You are terrified by certain people, places or things
